The folks at SK Telecom have been thinking about an interesting idea for Android on dumbphones and they call the product Android SIM. Take a look at how Engadget’s Sean Cooper succinctly describes it’s purpose:

Android SIM shoehorns a CPU, the Android OS, applications, user data, and 1GB of storage into the card pictured above. SK Telecom envisions it being used in dumbphones — as the CPU is onboard, there wouldn’t be a need for the device to have one — letting consumers move between sets or perhaps to a tablet with even more ease than they already can.

Interesting concept… do you think it will fly?
